Kim Kardashian Compared Herself To ‘I Love Lucy’
Once you’ve written about one reality show and the empty, mammoth husks of humanity that star in them, you kind of want to write about them all. So here’s Kim Kardashian literally comparing Keeping Up With The Kardashians to I Love Lucy with a straight face. Although, it’s not like she could move it if she wanted to. Via Gossip Cop:
Speaking at the Re/Code Code Mobile conference on Monday, the reality star complained that her success is viewed as inferior to that of other celebrities.
Kardashian was first asked why people don’t take her seriously. She replied, “That is a question that sometimes I get frustrated with. I pride myself in my work ethic and I work really hard.”
Kardashian went on, “I think sometimes that when people hear that I might have gotten success off of a ‘reality show,’ they take that as a negative. We’re filming our tenth season. We’ve had nine seasons of spinoffs. We have more episodes than ‘I Love Lucy.’ We have so many milestones that people don’t think about.” She further declared, “I don’t think reality TV gets the respect it deserves.”
I Love Lucy was a scripted show that required brilliant writing and equally brilliant actors to pull of the comedic timing just right which is why it’s regarded as one of the most beloved timeless classics in TV history. Keeping Up With The Kardashians is a show where vapid, wealthy shitheads go shopping while cameras follow them around. And sometimes they eat salad. That’s basically it. As for the respect it deserves, you’re in the same genre as vagina clown cars, the cults that fly out of them, and walrus swamp people who let pedophiles near their kids. You just happen to be the fancier freak show, and I’m only saying that because the whole child molester thing really lowered the bar here. You couldn’t have picked a better time to pull this.
